In her first televised interview since the tragic death of her mother, Whitney Houston, 19-year-old Bobbi Kristina sat down with Oprah Winfrey to reveal how she's grieving, her final moments with Whitney and how she plans to carry on her legacy.

"I can hear her voice in spirit talking to me, 'Keep talking to me. I got you,'" she told Oprah Sunday evening on the OWN series Oprah's Next Chapter (via PEOPLE). "She's always with me. I can always feel her. I can always feel her with me. She always asked me,'Do you need me?' And I caught myself, out of nowhere, I didn't even know I said it, I said, 'I'll always need you."

Brown, who was hospitalized following the death of her mother after an alleged emotional breakdown, also recalled spending time with Whitney on the day of her death.

"It was so early in the morning. I went to go get her and I said, 'Come lay with me,'" she said. "She stayed with me all night and all day. She was just rubbing my head and holding me. I just slept in her arms."

As for how she plans to move forward, Bobbi Kristina said, "I have to carry on the legacy. We're going to do the singing thing. Some acting, some dancing."

Whitney Houston died last month at the age of 48 of an alleged drug overdose. Bobbi Kristina, whom she had with ex-husband Bobby Brown, was her only child.
